Alliance Conference - What to Expect

  • AUDIO VISUAL: All meeting rooms are equipped with LCD projector (16:9), screen, lectern with wired podium microphone, panel table with a wired microphone and wireless Internet access. Presenters must bring their own laptop and any adaptors if applicable. Unlike in years past, HDMI-Connectors will be provided in each room for Alliance 2022, however, if you need a different converter (ie. VGA, DVI, Apple, etc), please bring it with you. If additional AV is needed, please email so they can put in a request with the conference team. These requests are subject to review and approval by the program chair.
  • INTERNET: Wireless internet service will be available in every session room. Presenters will have a separate Wi-Fi access code to use during their presentations only. Be cautious in using a live demo since some host systems can become unavailable unexpectedly and internet connectivity can be disrupted. Presenters are strongly encouraged to have screenshots with them as an alternative should any issues occur.
  • PRESENTER READY ROOM: A presenter ready room will be available for 30-minute time slots. Additional information will be disclosed in a later communication.
  • RECORDING: Unless otherwise specified, every session will have the audio portion recorded. Please use the microphones provided for the purpose of recording as this will make a dramatic difference in the value of the recording if questions are included. If your room does not have a separate microphone for audience questions, please repeat the question prior to answering.
  • FIRE CODES: Prior to starting your presentation, please ask any attendees standing to find a seat to avoid any fire code issues.  Some venues require that a Fire Marshall be onsite to look for any potential hazards to ensure the safety of all the attendees.
